How to Prepare 

The preparation process of the  recipe requires two separate tasks; one to prepare the cake and the other to prepare the frosting.

Cake:

01 – Thoroughly grease a 10×15 inch rimmed sheet pan and preheat the oven to 3250F

2 – Take a large bowl and add almond flour, baking powder, coconut flour, protein powder, salt, and sweetener in it. Use a fork to break the clumps formed

3 – Place a medium-size saucepan over medium heat setting and add butter, cocoa powder, and water to it.

Continuously stir until you get a smooth mixture. Bring the mixture to a boil before adding it to the large bowl

4 – Add cream, eggs, vanilla extract, and water to the bowl and mix thoroughly

5 – Spread the prepared mixture in the greased rimmed sheet pan

6 – Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or up until the cake sets completely

Frosting:

01 – Take another medium-size saucepan and place it on a medium heat setting. Thoroughly mix butter,

cocoa powder, cream, and water in it while continuously stirring. Add vanilla extract and keep stirring

Step 2 – Add powdered sweetener half-a-cup at a time to the mixture and whisk rapidly to get rid of any clumps formed. Lastly, add the xanthan gum

3 – Pour it over the warm cake and sprinkle with pecans

4 – Leave the cake and frosting for about 1 hour

Step 5 – Serve and enjoy!

Note:-

  • Double greasing the pan will help remove the cake easier
  • Using a pan bigger than 10×15 inches is fine but it will make the cake thinner and the baking process slightly faster
